IMPACT – MEDIUM
Authorities in Chennai have changed local registration requirements and the processes for obtaining residence permits and stay visas.
Background: India has rolled out notification requirements for foreign nationals arriving in certain jurisdictions over the past couple of years. Chennai is now requiring notification within 24 hours after arrival. Chennai became the first locale to require notification when foreigners move to or depart from their accommodations. The changes to the residence permit and stay visa process, meanwhile, were undertaken so officers could more closely review files before the permits and visas are issued.
BAL Analysis: Authorities in India are taking steps to better track foreigners and prevent them from overstaying their visas. Employers should note the changes, and may wish to check to make sure that notification has been provided within 24 hours for any employees who arrive in Chennai. BAL will continue to follow developments in India to determine whether other jurisdictions also change their notification or residence permit and visa processes. Those with questions about the notification requirement or permit or visa processes should contact their BAL professional.
